Marine sediment samples and interstitial water from five stations at the southwest of PuertoRico with different characteristics in composition, were submitted to acetylene reduction technique for nitrogen fixation quantification and ammonium analysis respectively.


Marine Sedimentation Processes and Framework Geology. ... (UPRM) Department of Marine Sciences conducted a marine seismic-reflection experiment focused on observing geophysical evidence of submarine faulting and mass wasting related to the southwestern Puerto Rico seismic sequence of 2019-20. The seismic sequence culminated with a magnitude 6.4 ...


the marine geological environments We first look at the processes that shape and modify the earth. Erosion, sedimentation, weathering, faulting, folding, vulcanism are but a few of the processes studied by geologists. Many of the …

sedimentation, and wave energy. 3. Mangrove species distributions across the intertidal zone often lead to distinct zonation patterns, which vary depending on floristic composition, geomorphology, and local factors. 4. Mangrove forests also vary in structural attributes such as species richness, canopy height,
